Hear me, and hear me clearly. The U.S. Government is in violation of the Social Contract. We know the Social Contract that formed this nation as the U.S. Constitution, and those which formed the States as the State Constitutions. Together, they create and define the laws by which our society is governed. But this is what these Social Contracts are: the supreme law of either their State or this nation, and the chief executives are legally and morally bound to remain inside the boundaries set out by these Constitutions. In Obama’s case, that means he is legally and morally obligated to operate according to the letter of the Constitution – as understood at the time of ratification! If the President refuses to do so, then he loses his legitimacy and – with it – his authority. But when the Congress allows the President to repeatedly and blatantly violate both federal and State law and does nothing to stop him, and when the Courts not only turn a blind eye to this violation of Constitutional law but lends its authority to this usurpation, then the entire federal government is in violation of the Social Contract (i.e. Constitution) and ceases to be legitimate. In other words, it cedes its legitimate authority and enters into an open state of war with the people. At that point, we are no longer bound by the law because the government has destroyed the law. This is where we find ourselves today: with a government that has entered into an open state of war with the American people!
Let me ask you something: when was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? If you haven’t done so in the last six months, take a moment to read it – do it now! The Declaration is a legal document, written according to the internationally accepted practices of the law at the time of our founding. As such, it lists a series of charges against the Crown. Today, we are told they are archaic and, therefore, have no meaning in our ‘modern’ world. This is a lie! If you doubt me, read the charges and think about the modern equivalent(s) that are happening today:
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.(How many times have the courts over ruled something the people voted on and passed; or the President has directed his Attorney General to ignore, or even tell the State Attorney Generals to ignore?)
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. (How many times have the States passed laws only to have some judge suspend them until Washington can decide what it wants to do about them?)
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. (How often are Federal laws passed mandating the States to do something, or how often are Federal programs tied to Federal funding? These are – in spirit – the same thing: demanding the people submit before the federal government will act on their behalf)
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. (Obama has told the Senate they were not in session when they were so that he could make recess appointments. Again, in spirit, that is the same thing)
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. (Refusal to enforce immigration laws: agains, same thing in spirit and practice)
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance. (The bureaucracies that Obama now uses as a de facto legislature)
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. (DHS, and other militarized law enforcement agencies that do not answer to the Congress, thereby negating the spirit of subjecting military forces to civilian authority)
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power. (This has been done through the aforementioned law enforcement agencies. There are daily stories now about these agencies violating the laws and trampling on citizens’ rights with immunity)
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: (The Supreme Court has started citing foreign legal precedents, and the federal government has been bypassing the Constitution through Treaty).
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: (Many cases are now on the books where citizens have been forced to surrender their homes to the aforementioned militarized law enforcement agencies. In spirit, same thing)
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: (There are many cases of political trials now, and we have had government officials who have murdered citizens and were never charged. This has become an increasingly common problem – Ruby Ridge is just one example)
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: (Federal regulation of our trade has effectively done the same thing: trade can only occur with those nations the government permits, and then, only as the government allows)
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: (This is totally out of control, and includes double and triple taxation. It’s just so hidden and/or ignored that no one even sees or cares about it anymore)
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury (There are many, many cases where trial by jury has been denied. We have now started executing American citizens without any due process at all!)
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences (This hasn’t happened – yet. But if you’ll remember, there were people in the U.S. who wanted to let Bush be tried by foreign powers, and we have had our soldiers given over to foreign courts for crimes they were charged with while in service to America)
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies: (In spirit, this is the living document doctrine, whereby the laws change according to whatever the federal government wants them to be – or Obama flat out ignores them)
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: (Obama has already done this, and a Liberal law professor said so during testimony to Congress this week)
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. (In effect, this is the same thing as negating or telling the State Attorney Generals to negate the laws passed by the State legislatures)
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. (Failure to enforce border security; using federal financing as a means of extortion and control; favoritism to political allies at the expense of the rest of the citizenry and more are all examples of this, at least in spirit if not in actual deed)
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. (The federal debt is a form of plunder; the tax burden is a form of ravaging the people and Obama care is a form of slavery…)
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.(This is being done by turning a blind eye to the borders and Islamic Jihadis operating within this nation)
Now, be honest, when was the last time you looked at how closely we have come to the conditions that existed before our founders seceded from England? And the list of comparisons I gave was just off the top of my head. I am sure you could add to them – if you tried. But there’s more. We no longer have the right o life from creation: abortion is not only legal, but advanced by the federal government and the people are forced to pay for it. We have no liberty when we are forced to bake cakes for people we consider to be morally objectionable: we have slavery. And we cannot pursue happiness when every aspect of our daily lives is controlled in some way by the people in Washington. Connecticut is talking about taking the Peoples’ weapons away; the government is openly asserting that it needs to monitor the press; the Supreme Court has said the fourth Amendment is ‘conditional;’ the fifth Amendment is negated by electronic surveillance; and the list goes on, and on, and on, and…
I used to think this was our fault — we, the people — but no more! Now I realize this is the fault of open usurpation. The people have been trying to assert their will, but our masters turn a blind eye and deaf ear. And when we roar, like in the TEA Party movement, they turn the power of the IRS on us (add that to the list above). They pass laws saying they can hold terrorists without due process, then pass laws saying that anyone who tries to oppose their power grabs is a terrorist. So, fellow terrorist, let me ask you something:
At what point do we read the first two paragraphs of the Declaration and realize that we have finally arrived at the Jefferson option?
